Kernel 2.6.22 Released

Finally, i have been waiting for this release since i want to compile a vanilla kernel from source for my Slackware. I have some problem with the huge kernels included in the default installation since it cannot detect my soundcard and ethernet card. Probably changing to generic will solve it, but as i already used to compile kernels, it would be better if i try out the latest kernel also (fresh from the oven).

What i don't understand is this text from Linus:
Woo-hoo. I'm sure somebody will report a "this doesn't compile, and I have a new root exploit" five minutes after release, but it still feels good ;)
i'm pretty sure that Linus wouldn't release a buggy kernel as it's being used by lots of people around the world big grin
